Normally I tend to avoid animated features, just because I know they’re really not made for me. But once in a while, there’s one that is actually endearing to me, making me glad I took the time to check it out… Abominable, just happens to be one of those films.
This was a fun adventure that had enough maturity to it that I think adults will appreciate as well as some oddball humor that will keep the kiddos giggling too. Plus its got a giant yeti, named Everest, who’s actually a kid in the yeti world, that has magical powers. And with those powers takes his rescuers on a scary but fun journey.
As far as our main cast goes, I’m a big Chloe Bennet fan. Voicing the main character, Yi, you could actually see some of Chole’s real personality come thru. However, I do think that they could have gone with more of that personality to add a little more charm to the character. I definitely wasn’t disappointed.
Like a lot of these animated movies, there are things you see early on that come into play later. Personally, I like when they get creative like that, but it’s also a safe formula that I’m sure they knew would work and just went with it. Throw in some bright color schemes and over the top visuals, and you got a flick worth checking out.
